in benghazi that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. congress are investigating whether intelligence or security lapses contributed to the terrible toll in that dpedly attack. steve handelsman joins us with more on that tragedy. >> reporter: good evening. up here on the hill, the upcoming elections still colors this investigation. republicans believe the white house tried to engineer a cover-up. but today the main question was way simpler. where were so few american forces on guard in such a dangerous place. to highlight his concern, president obama had his terrorism adviser john brennan in libya today, to push the investigation of the 9/11, 2012, attack that killed chris stevens and three others. but republicans at the house hearing charged the obama state department showed a lack of concern last summer, after u.s. facilities in benghazi were attacked twice. >> i believe personally with more assets, more resources, just meeting the minimum standards, we could have and should have saved the life of ambassador stevens and the other people that were there. >> reporter: one
by additional security? we're hearing there were concerns by some of those who were a part of ambassador stevens' immediate group talking about issues that they had. there's also been just moments ago, some discussion about whether some of the information being presented is classified or not. so there are lots of political overtones to this. very complicated because there are lives that were lost here. there was service to the country from these fine americans who were there and who were killed and so everyone is trying to trade a bit lightly on that. but there is a lot of politics mixed into this along with the committee's responsibility in oversight to look for answers. there was frustration among some republicans that the state department put out a detailed timeline but not included members of the committee. frustration among democrats who say that one of the members jason chav fitz went to libya but no democrats involved on that trip. there are complex ish shis and don't expect to have all of the issues. they want to shine a light on things, worries among those closest to ambassador stevens

.s. ambassador cyst center stevens and three other americans were killed in that attack. senior international correspondent arwa damon went to the consulate ruins to help piece together exactly what happened. >> reporter: amid the ashes, soot, and debris, remnants of the life that was. it's all that remained in the unguarded u.s. consulate compound in benghazi when cnn arrived on the scene three days after the spleptember 11th atta. eyewitnesses told us it was a complex assault. the compound's first line of defense easily breached. according to one of the libyan guards who was stationed at the gate, armed with only a radio, the assault happened simultaneously from three different directions. he says that he initially heard chanting growing increasingly louder and then suddenly the gunfire, the rocket-propelled grenades, and other heavy machine gunfire all began attackiattack ing the compound in is where am boss der chris stevens slept. a makeshift safe room. here on the floor is where cnn found the ambassador's journal. it is also the same room where the ambassador was located, hours after th
all the justices who sat on the court in the last 30 years except justice stevens had agreed with that point. the question is, is there a compelling enough interest to overcome that first amendment right. so that's the one question and in the second question is how much of that in should be disclosed. we haven't gotten to that very much. >> i think that's a great place for us to go. just a reminder that bradley smith is the cofounder of the center for competitive politics, and a fan of the regular so political money, and melanie sloan is executive director of citizens for responsibility and ethics in washington. melanie, i'm going to turn back to you. i want to get to the disclosure question but also want to approach the question of whether there is a fundamental mismatch between one person one vote and money is free speech. >> i wouldn't agree that money equals speech. i think that they're separate and distinct. i think that there is, a lot of questions about disclosure issues and all the people he used to be all in favor of disclosure in fact are no longer in favor of discl
, my gosh. steven colbert yesterday on "meet the press" briefly stepping out of character with david gregory. >> does the outcome of this presidential election change anything significantly? >> sure. sure. i'm not ralph nader. you know what i mean? i don't think there's no difference. there is a difference. i don't know what the difference is, though. because i think -- i think there is a possibility that obama would be, say, more aggressive -- a more aggressive or reformer in the second act of his presidency. and i don't really know how -- i also don't know how mitt romney would govern. he might govern as a technocrat. like the guy from pepsi who comes in to run gm. he can't tell us what he'll do because he hasn't seen the books yet. we don't know, because he seems absolutely sincere as a moderate and pretty sincere as a severe conservative. so that's not a dig. it's honest confusion. he's got a good shot of winning. if he does, i hope he's a good president. if obama wins, i hope he keeps some of the promises he didn't keep the first time. but i have no idea how it changes for us. b
